XScreenSaver

Hi,

I'm currently moving all our local school's desktop clients from
Slackware 14.1 to CentOS 7 + Xfce. Right now I'm fine-tuning the default
user profile.

I have a problem with XScreenSaver. The application per se works very
well. Only there's a hard-coded pop-up window that reminds the user that
he's not running the latest version. So, if I'm running version 5.36 as
provided by the EPEL repo and not the latest and greatest 5.38 as
provided upstream, I get a pestering pop-up window informing me that
YOUR VERSION OF XSCREENSAVER IS VERY OLD.

CentOS 7 + MariaDB + phpMyAdmin

I can't seem to get phpMyAdmin working. I got the ip address problem (permission) resolved, but now I'm getting a "Parallels H-Sphere" error "Error 404: File Not found". I've looked in all the logs and cannot determine what file is not found.

DHCPv6 prefix delegation

Is there an DHCPv6 client in CentOS that supports prefix delegation
correctly? The old version of dhclient can't set a requested prefix
delegation length, so isn't very useful, and I can't get the even-older
wide-dhcpv6 from EPEL to work.

CentOS 7 + Xfce + GDM : disable "switch user" ?

Hi,

I have CentOS 7 + Xfce + GDM installed on all our local school's desktop
clients.

I'd like to disable the "switch user" menu entry, since our desktop
clients have a relatively limited amount of RAM. Most users tend to use
the "switch user" functionality to log off, and at the end of the day,
the computer has no RAM left.

I know there is a way to disable this functionality, I vaguely remember
having it done a few years ago on Slackware.

Any suggestions ?

Pushing sources back to Centos from RHEL

Even though I am NFV SIG chair, I am still learning.

We have a package, fd.io/vpp  that is in the NFV SIG may eventually be
part of RHEL. As part of the planning process RHEL RCM is asking for the
URL to push packages back to Centos.

What URL or mechanism does RHEL use to push sources to Centos?

Do they use cbs? Does this happen by way of the CentOS git?

Do we need a CentOS git account for NFV SIG?

How do you handle this in Cloud SIG?

CentOS Atomic Host 7.1803 Available for Download

The CentOS Atomic SIG has released an updated version
(<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download" title="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download">https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic/Download</a>) of
CentOS Atomic Host (7.1803), a lean operating system designed to run
Linux containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and tracking the
component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.

This release rolls up all package minor updates that shipped through
the month of March, including, most significantly, a move to docker
version 1.13.

CentOS Atomic Host includes these core component versions:

* atomic-1.22.1-1.gitd36c015.el7.centos.x86_64
* cloud-init

Unable to access network from docker container

I have recently installed docker and playing around with it. On a CentOS 7 machine, however, I am unable to get access to the outside internet, thus yum ... fails. The host machine runs fine.

I am wondering if there are some networking setting on the host I need to modify to allow the docker container to connect to the outside?

Centos 7 LAPP setup PHP 5 vs 7

Another questions regarding my new server setup.

As with the Postgresql setup, different pages describing setting up a Centos
LAPP server have differing opinions about PHP versions.

The default distro's appear to still be installing PHP5 while some sites
instruct on how to install PHP7.

I am porting my old server which must be 10 years old, running Fedora 9 and
PHP5 onto the new server, so presumably sticking with PHP5 would be the
easier option.

However, I am looking to give my new server as long a life as possible, so
should I instead be looking at PHP7?

I have literally thousonds

Centos 7 LAPP setup Postgresql version and setup

Hi all,

I've got a nice shiny new server which I'm going to build as a LAPP platform.

I've just had a quick look for suitable instructions on the best way to
configure it and I have a few questions. There are many hits, some better
than others.

(It is replacing a Fedora 9 server so I'm expecting to have lots of *fun*)

1) 9.2 vs 9.5

Some of the instruction pages I've found install using the standard
repositories and install version 9.2 (?) while some others add a postgresql
repo and install 9.5

What are people's opinions?

SIGs: Possibility to drop EOL content at 7.5 release time

Hi, this is not really my job, but I don't mind ruffling a few feathers
if I need to.

RHEL/CentOS 7.5 is probably around the corner. This would be an
excellent time to remove any EOL software you may have floating around
on mirror.centos.org. Unless otherwise specified, any SIG content under
7.4 will be copied over to 7,5.

I'd imagine that for example openstack-newton could be dropped because
it went EOL in 2017-10-25. Is there some other content that could be
dropped?

If SIGs want to drop something at 7.5 release time, please let hughesjr
know.

no mirrorlist in centos-release-scl* on el6

tftpd server S not responding

I have a tftpd server S running on centos 7 and managed by systemd

It is not respoding to A server which is sending the tftp read request RRQ.

I do see the RRQ packets coming from A to S, but S never responds back from
a different port Y to A

So this part is working fine

<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trivial_File_Transfer_Protocol#/media/File:Tftp-rrq.svg" title="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trivial_File_Transfer_Protocol#/media/File:Tftp-rrq.svg">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trivial_File_Transfer_Protocol#/media/File...</a>

But I do not see any attempts to even send a data packet back in my packet
capture running on S

So this event is not occuring, as if my tftpd server is dead.

How insecure is NIS ? Possible alternatives ?

Hi,

In the past I've setup simple centralized authentication with NIS and
NFS, without bothering about possible security implications.

Over the next month I have to setup a new network in a local school, and
I wonder if I should use NIS/NFS. I still have my own documentation,
it's simple and somewhat bone-headed to setup, and it just works.

RHEL/CentOS 7 still provide NIS, and I vaguely wonder how exactly it is
insecure. So I thought I'd simply ask on this list.

I know there's FreeIPA available.

How Can I ...

I've got a WD My Passport Ultra 1TB (USB) plugged into my router and I
have 4 Windows machines, all running Windows 7, and all 4 machines can
see the device as drive 'Y'. I use this device several ways, i.e. all my
Windows machines use the same Firefox bookmarks and cookies

I've got 5 machines running CentOS 6 x86_64 and I'd like to know what do
I have to do for them to 'see' that same 1TB device? Right now I use
winscp to get the data from CentOS and save it on the device via Windows.

Next major version of Firefox on RHEL/CentOS ?

I know CentOS don't have inside info on what Redhat may or may not do in
the future - plus Redhat don't usually announce publicly what their
future plans are - but on the off-chance that someone on this list may know:

Does anyone know what Redhat are likely to do with the next major
release of Firefox on RHEL (and hence CentOS) ?

The reason I ask, is that RHEL has been supplying the 'ESR' (Extended
Support Release) version of Firefox - which Mozilla supports for about a
year - and RHEL moves to each new ESR version before Mozilla drops
support for the previous version.

Wi-Fi WPA Hacking Tool is Totally Useless on New Wireless Routers

Hi,

I am sharing my learning outcomes.

Recently I downloaded Kali Linux 64-bit Version 2018.1 and ran it on
my HP laptop with the integrated Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260
Wireless Network Card.

I wanted to test if I could hack the Wi-Fi WPA password on Ruckus R700
Access Point (AP) and the Aztech DSL8900GR(AC) Wireless Router. So I
started using the Reaver WPA cracking tool.

I understand that the Reaver tool works because there is a bug with
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).

I have no luck with Reaver on the Ruckus R700 Access Point.

Install CentOS 7 over serial port on router board ?

There is no VGA or HDMI video output, just a serial port to connect to,
and then three NICs and two USB ports.

I've never installed CentOS over a serial console, so I don't even know
if it's possible in the first place. Has anyone ever done something like
that ?

Any suggestions ?

<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork" title="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork">https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork</a>

Is this still an ongoing effort, or is it "done"?

debuginfo.centos.org status

Hello folks,

I have few remarks about <a href="http://debuginfo.centos.org" title="http://debuginfo.centos.org">http://debuginfo.centos.org</a> as an user.

Lately our debug tools are depending on few debuginfo packages so we
depend on them in our production environment.

The debuginfo server is structured as following :
.
├── 7
│ ├── i386
│ │ └── repodata
│ └── x86_64
│ └── repodata
└── centos
├── 6
│ └── sclo
└── 7
├── cloud
├── sclo
├── storage
└── virt

1/ It seems that the experimental kernel debuginfo are copied in the
same directory as the os/updates/extras which confuse a bit users
(/7/x86_64

Squid vs. iptables redirection: exception for certain domains ?

Hi,

I'm currently facing a quite tricky problem. Here goes.

I have setup Squid as a transparent HTTP+HTTPS proxy in my local
network. All web traffic gets handed over to Squid by an iptables script
on the server.

yum list "available" versus "updates", and centosplus versioning

quite possibly more a yum question than a centos question, but i'm a
bit confused about the difference between listing "available" packages
versus "updates" packages.

short example -- listing what the yum man page suggests should be
"available" for installation, restricting myself to centosplus:

$ yum list available --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=centosplus

SELinux breaks Squid's ssl_crtd helper

Hi,

I've setup a transparent HTTP+HTTPS proxy on my server running CentOS 7,
using Squid.

Memory Leak with PHP

I understand that this problem may have very little to do with CentOs, but it happens to occur on a CentOS webserver and maybe you’ll have a clue.

Since a few months, after many upgrades on several blogs (now running with PHP7), our server is eating up RAM no end. PHP processes swell to over 2 GB (each) and when the whole RAM and the whole swap are full, problems stack up and finally paralyze the system.

mate-terminal crash when using drag-n-drop tabs

We're using mate-terminal (1.16.3) from EPEL on CentOS 7.4 with the Mate
desktop, but mate-terminal crashes when we do the following:

Start mate-terminal, open a tab (File -> Open Tab) then with the left
mouse button drag a tab and drop it in the same terminal window - and
the terminal window crashes ...

I did a bit of Googling, and found this issue reported in earlier
releases of mate-terminal - which was fixed - but no mention of issues
with 1.16.x

However, if I rebuild and install the package from the mate-terminal
1.16.3 SRPM from EPEL, it doesn't crash ...

Which is rather bizarr

ETA when PaaS SIG 3.9 will fix the "SerialFileGenerator starts at 2" issue?

The current 3.9 centos paas repos are at v3.9.0-alpha.4.  However, I
cannot deploy origin 3.9.0-alpha.4 using ansible (openshift-ansible
latest release-3.9 branch) because I run into this issue:

TASK [openshift_master : Wait for API to become available]
*********************
        "* NSS error -8054 (SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL)",
        "* You are attempting to import a cert with the same
issuer/serial as an existing cert, but that is not the same cert.",

This was fixed by 95e262011438642410959914c3db9868c57739ff

But that's at commit v3.9.0-alpha.4-426-g95e2620114

NIC naming conventions and vmware

I have a couple of CentOS 7 machines running in a vmware environment. On
all the older ones I've deployed, the NIC is named ens160, but on all of
the new ones, it is named ens192. I can't find any difference in the
hardware that would account for this.

Any suggestions on what I can do to figure out why some are named ens160
and some ens192?

Thanks.
